In my recent backyard (since 1.5 year), I have been clumsy (and lazy). This not so young lavender (Lavandula) was blooming last summer, and I neglected cutting the flowers at the right time. I just let it go. During Fall, I looked at garden for dummies' advices. I tried to pruning branches on "green" parts only, as suggested. And circled it by a wired to keep the shrub straight.
I understood dead branches won't bloom again. I probably pruned too much, this is the present look. The front looks quite dead. It has a lot of rosemary bugs that I handpick, but I cannot blame them, honestly.
- What should I do, and when to revive the plant, and have it grow away from the bottom and not the back and top only?
- Would one suggest me to leave it a little time, and try for instance propagation by cuttings?
